Alarming Clock

Topic: 5F Changing sounds

A "woodpecker clock" invented by a 22-year-old student has replaced the annoying clangs and buzzes of traditional alarms with a gentle tapping wake-up.

In this activity children will investigate how this clock works and determine how they would change the sound.
